07 Jun 2023 - Introducing Cuach Carran

Cuach is the Irish name for Cuckoo, and Carran is the name of a mountain in the Burren National Park where this bird was tagged.

On examining him, the tagging team were able to establish that Carran is a juvenile male, hatched last year. All of our other tagged birds this year are full adults.

Since being tagged, Carran has remained at his tagging location.
